Henry is married to Helen and they have four sons - Rodney, Keith, Nathan and Jason.

Henry came to Ardess as curate in 2006 and was appointed rector in 2011.  Henry had previously worked as an accountant and served in Monaghan as a curate for two years.

At the age of 18 Henry realised that God wanted more than just spending an hour on a Sunday morning.  The realisation that God wants a personal relationship with us was life changing.  Henry has a passion that everyone will come to realise the love God has for them as it reaches into every part of their lives; for him church exists as Gods way of showing His love.

Philip was ordained curate to Ardess Parish Church in 2016 after serving a deacon year in Belfast.  He previously worked in the areas of Youth and Children's Work, Pastoral Support and Community Work. 

After coming to faith in his early teens, Philip got involved in C.E., C.S.S.M., C.E.F., and Sunday School, having a desire to know what God and faith was all about and to share that with others.  He has a desire to see people encounter the love of God through those who are His and to see God's people walking in freedom, power and love.
